Texas Tech is welcoming some of the best chess players from all over the world to Lubbock this week.

Participants include ten internationally acclaimed players from Poland, Hungary, Mexico, Russia and the United States. They will compete against each other through nine rounds of play over eight days.

Each player has an average rating of 2,527, well above the 2,400 required to earn the U.S. Chess Federation’s highest class designation of senior master.

Children from a number of Lubbock schools are invited to attend the event each day to participate in special activities and raffles. SPICE was created in part as a tool for chess education and outreach.

Here is the full story.
